Africa Health Placements - Medical Employment Specialists South Africa

Africa Health Placements (AHP) is a South African-based social profit organisation working to address the extreme inequities in access to healthcare through human resource solutions. The organisation’s mission targets health access for the most indigent, partnering governments, civil society and the private sector to do so. AHP defines itself as social profit because its work, while mostly donor-funded, delivers a profit measured in terms of improved healthcare and social indicators. 

AHP currently offers five HR services:

  • Culture strategy consulting
  • Workforce planning
  • Staffing
  • Retention and
  • Human Resources for Health (HRH) systems advisory services

Culture Strategy Consulting
AHP partners a culture strategy consultancy to deliver integrated talent management solutions to public and philanthropic clients. The basis of AHP’s approach is to improve performance and produce results by codifying institutional culture in a measurable way, and then embedding this in recruitment, onboarding and performance management systems.

Workforce Planning
AHP offers workforce planning to help facilities and governments understand where health workers of a particular skill can make the greatest impact on health outcomes. 

AHP sources, registers, matches, places and orientates managers, health workers and support staff for public health facilities. Candidates are recruited both locally and from abroad. 

AHP offers a rational and measurable Retention Programme to improve the retention of scarce skills in nine districts and one sub-district out of South Africa’s 52 health districts. 

Human Resources for Health Systems Advisory Services
AHP’s wealth of knowledge and experience in providing human resource solutions and services enables the organisation to gather relevant data from a wide range of sources and translate this information into best practice models which are used to improve health policy and systems.
